This week I am feverishly working on a Clockwork scarf/shawl by a desinger I'm going to meet for a book signing and trunk show. I'm a bit excited about it. I do have other knits that I've knitted by him, but I "needed" something new and more spring like. I've had the yarn for this pattern for a couple of months and this was the perfect opportunity for me to knit it. I love green and purple together. It is a bit tedious with 270+ sts per row but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end. I just hope I can finish it in time!
I've decided that my previous read, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is just not working for me. Just not my taste. Where is the hero? The epic romance? Mr. Darcy? So, to fill my time while I knit away, I've taken the advice from Like Mother, Like Daughter's Yarn Along post, and am reading (or listening to) Lark Rise to Candleford. Oh. My. I love it. Even though it isn't a "story", I just love it. I love to read about that time before everything became so mechanical, mass produced, and when artisians were appreciated for their necessity towards their community. I'll probably listen to it twice.

Looking forward to seeing more Yarn Alongs!
